jony ive leaves an apple that continues to flourish

WHY THE CUPERTINO GIANT IS WELL-PLACED TO CONTINUE ITS GOLDEN RUN Towards the end of June, Apple dropped something of a bombshell among the tech press: the corporation’s Chief Design Officer, Jony Ive, was set to leave the company to launch his own design firm, LoveFrom . This wasn’t ‘just another’ staff departure from Apple: Ive had been part of the Apple fold for nearly 30 years, proving hugely influential in developing and refining product lines ranging from the Mac and iPod to the iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch. As the news broke, it inevitably ushered in feverish whispers about what Ive’s high-profile exit meant for Apple’s future – and especially tantalizingly, why Ive chose to leave. Speaking to the Financial Times, Ive implied that he sought more flexibility in his future…

flying blind: apps help visually impaired navigate airport

Navigating airports can be tricky. They’re loud, crowded and not always laid out intuitively. They’re even more challenging for visually impaired people. Chieko Asakawa knows those challenges firsthand, and she has also devised a remedy. Asakawa has been blind since she was 14 and is now an IBM Fellow and a professor in Carnegie Mellon University’s Robotics Institute. This spring, she and other researchers at Carnegie Mellon launched a navigation app for Pittsburgh International Airport that provides turn-by-turn audio instructions to users on how to get to their destination, be it a departure gate, restaurant or restroom. Pittsburgh is one of a growing number of airports around the globe to provide wayfinding apps. The Pittsburgh app, called NavCog, was first used at the Carnegie Mellon campus and works almost like an…

trump v. big tech: social media summit will snub tech titans

President Donald Trump is gathering conservative groups at the White House this week for a “summit” on social media that will prominently snub the tech titans who run big platforms on Facebook, Twitter and Google. It’s a sharp contrast to earlier days in Trump’s tenure when tech executives were occasional celebrity guests at the White House, serving as a fresh indication of the president’s escalating battle with Big Tech. Now, Trump regularly accuses the big social media platforms of suppressing conservative voices. He has suggested the companies may be acting illegally and should be sued by U.S. regulators. White House spokesman Judd Deere said the White House conference would bring together “digital leaders for a robust conversation on the opportunities and challenges of today’s online environment.” But Google, Facebook and…

samsung predicts 56% drop in 2q profit on weak chip market

Samsung Electronics Co. said its operating profit for the last quarter likely fell more than 56% from a year earlier amid a weak market for memory chips. The South Korean tech giant estimated an operating profit of 6.5 trillion won ($5.5 billion) for the April-June quarter, which would represent a 56.3% drop from the same period last year. The company said its revenue likely fell 4% to 56 trillion won ($48 billion), but did not provide a detailed account of its performance by business division. It will release a finalized earnings report later this month. Analysts say falling prices of DRAM and NAND memory chips are eating into the earnings of the company, which saw its operating profit during the first quarter drop more than 60% from last year. U.S. sanctions on Chinese…

fresh from the lab: startups make meat that avoids slaughter

Uma Valeti slices into a pan-fried chicken cutlet in the kitchen of his startup, Memphis Meats. He sniffs the tender morsel on his fork before taking a bite. He chews slowly, absorbing the taste. “Our chicken is chicken ... you’ve got to taste it to believe it,”Valeti says. This is no ordinary piece of poultry. No chicken was raised or slaughtered to harvest the meat. It was produced in a laboratory by extracting cells from a chicken and feeding them in a nutrient broth until the cell culture grew into raw meat. Memphis Meats, based in Emeryville, California, is one of a growing number of startups worldwide that are making cell-based or cultured meat. They want to offer an alternative to traditional meat production that they say is damaging the environment and causing…
